New Delhi: England fast bowler James Anderson became only the second bowler in the history of Tests to take 100 wickets at a single venue after Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan, on Sunday.

During the course of India's second innings at Lord's, opener Murali Vijay became Anderson's 100th victim at the venue. Muralitharan had achieved this feat at three different venues during his career.
